Michigan winters are brutal on skin, causing it to become chapped and dehydrated and taking away its natural moisture barrier. This is why you may need to change up your normal skin care routine when the weather chills. A great way to avoid dry skin is by getting a luxurious and soothing facial that will address all types of skin conditions. Facials are custom blended to help hydrate and firm the skin to its optimum texture, leaving you looking and feeling beautiful. Here are five of the best salon-spas in the Detroit Metro area where you are sure to get a relaxing facial that can also help rejuvinate your mind.
